Royal Berkshire Shooting School (RBSS) has announced its sponsorship of Reading University Clay Pigeon Shooting Club (RUCPSC) to enable members to benefit from regular professional tuition and hone their competitive edge.

RBSS has allocated two of its eight full-time instructors, Steve Turner and Peter Wilkins, to RUCPSC and will provide use of shotguns and tuition in English Sporting clay shooting each week.

After agreeing the sponsorship RBSS ran an open day at its grounds near Pangbourne in Berkshire and welcomed over 50 Reading University students keen to try clay pigeon shooting, many of whom had never held a gun before.

Sam Gosling, Chair of RUCPSC, says: “Thanks to RBSS’s generous sponsorship our members can now the very best in tuition at its superb facilities. This will enable every member to reach their potential, improve our performance in competitions and also raise the profile of the club and clay shooting within the University and further afield.”

Dylan Williams, Managing Director of RBSS, added: “Many university shooting clubs are supported by individuals and shooting grounds and I hope this initiative will spur others to get involved in the same way. We look forward to empowering RUCPSC members to become the best clay shots they can be by providing them with regular, top tier professional tuition.”
